BCFED Health & Safety Centre

The BCFED Health & Safety Centre was first established to help train workers and workplace representatives so they could act with confidence and competence on their considerable legal rights and responsibilities as provided by occupational health and safety law. Meeting and exceeding this legislation remains a focus for the Centre. In the face of unchecked occupational hazards and much suffering, full implementation of these rights and responsibilities is an absolute necessity, socially and morally.
